Description: The human form; nude, naked, clothed, full bodies, partial bodies, gendered and racial bodies, young and old bodies constitute a primary subject in contemporary artistic practice. In this class we will explore both the traditions of the photographic nude in art and its subversions in late 20th and 21st century photography. Students will be expected to develop a "body" of photographs related to the topic that can intersect anywhere with the body: straight portraiture, nudes, abstractions of bodies or virtual Web bodies. Students will be instructed to use cameras, computers and materials to develop an aesthetic strategy that either embraces or challenges existing genres. Instructor Permission.
